The British Trophy is an annual football championship organised by BESA exclusively for international schools in Egypt. Established in 2014, this tournament has gained significance over the years and has become a tradition.
Football teams from various international schools compete against each other under the supervision of a designated school representative, usually the Physical Education instructor. Each team consists of 7-9 players. Over the course of four days, multiple matches are played to secure advancement to subsequent rounds. The ultimate prize for the winning team is a week-long trip to the United Kingdom.
The primary objective of the British Trophy is to provide a gateway for Egyptian students to experience international educational opportunities and to promote the integration of physical education into the Egyptian school system. It offers a unique opportunity for senior students aged 15 to 18 to explore British universities and their campuses as part of the UK tour.
